1  Help finding a pattern for a Swedish-like dress? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by bequietclaire on: June 20, 2008 07:38:25 PM
Does anyone know any patterns for dresses, blouses, tunics, or shirts that have a band collar and a button front like the one in this picture of Jens Lekman's bandmate? The sleeve and dress lengths in the pattern are irrelevant, as I can modify them. The collar is most important part at this point.

I can't really think of any other way to describe the dress than as "Swedish" because the girl wearing it is a Swede. It would be very helpful if anyone could help to identify the style and parts of the dress in technical terms. Like, is it a frock or a smock or a tunic? I really have no idea.

Thank you so much!

Okay guys, here's the final product. I have yet to make it into a dress, but  if I get around to it, I'll just do the skirt in the round, joining the two front panels (mainly because those buttons were overpriced and I don't want them to line the entire front). First I have to tick through a loooong list of gifts before graduation season, haha.

3  Big, chunky, graphic scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by bequietclaire on: February 19, 2007 04:07:39 PM
This is a birthday present for a friend that I made this long weekend. I called her up halfway through and asked her for a shape, symbol, or word that she liked. She texted me the next day and said "whirlpool is a pretty cool word." And so here it is. It is absolutely giant and I hope it's not too monstrous for everyday wear.

4  Just in time for Mardi Gras in Crochet: Completed Projects by bequietclaire on: February 18, 2007 07:51:18 PM
This is actually my Italian homework. Yeah, the class is a total blowoff. We're supposed to make a carnevale mask for Tuesday, which is of course Mardi Gras. I thought, "Why make it out of boring things like plastic and paper when I have yarn?"
I took a simple and natural approach to the traditional, opulent carnevale mask by using undyed cotton and floral accents. It was really easy and took only a couple hours.

P.S.- Ignore the unwoven-in end. I'll get to that eventually.
